2020/21 Season start

Hi everybody,

I am calling a CCC management meeting for 6th July as I feel it is imperative that we consider some contingency plans for the forthcoming season and we need your help to do that. On that basis I table the following question that requires a straight forward yes or no answer. 

‘Should the current guidelines of the day at the start of our season allow us to meet at Tangmere from September 3rd onwards, would you attend YES or NO?’

I understand that there are many variables and unknowns at this present moment but the committee will need these figures to consider the viability of holding meetings from the start of the season should we be allowed to do so. If the responses indicate  potentially very low attendances then we will need to consider and plan how we move forward.

Because our numbers for attendance at Tangmere meetings is generally around the 50+ mark, this note is predominantly aimed at those members who do regularly attend. Having said that I would be happy to receive  replies from as many members as possible but specifically from our regular attendees. 

I’d be grateful if you could reply to this mail at this address, chair@chichestercameraclub.org.uk, by Friday 3rd July so I can collate the results in time for our meeting on the 6th July.

With thanks to you all and stay safe.

Mike Harris

Chair CCC.

2019/20 CCC Camera club Trophy Winner Results

I’m delighted to announce the winners of the following cups for last season. While the normal procedure for the Coath and Edmunds Cups is by a members vote,  due to the current lockdown situation it has not been possible for this to take place. On that basis the management committee and the President unanimously agreed that the two recipients are very worthy winners.

Novium/CCC Summer Showcase update

Hi Everybody,

I’m delighted to post this update from Peter Rocchiccioli and Jeff Owen regarding our proposed collaboration with the Novium Museum. On behalf of us all I’d  like to pass on  our thanks to both of them for their work in progressing this important initiative.

Mike

UPDATE

‘We want to let all the members know that we have been working closely with Stephanie Thorndyke of the Novium Museum as they have agreed to host a virtual photography summer showcase of our work from August to Christmas and further if we wish.
This will be called Chichester Camera Club Photographic Showcase and is a great opportunity for all our members to show up to four images during these unprecedented times. It is highly unlikely we will  have another opportunity to show our work during 2020.
Jeff and I are really excited about what the virtual event can offer,  as the platform we will be using is incredibly versatile and provides us with a fantastic opportunity to try something new, showing off photography and video in a different way. We look forward to seeing everyone putting in work and supporting the club.
We would like members to upload four of their best images, but not those that were used in last year’s exhibition. Uploading is now open and will close on the 10th July and please upload to a maximum size of 1920 x 1080′.
